Holds gravity and pump feeds
Created by parents of a tube-fed child
Why the FreeArm?
An extra hand.
The FreeArm lends a hand at the hospital, home and on-the-go.
More mobility with bolus and pump feeding.
The FreeArm clamps to surfaces such as tables, cribs, strollers, you name it! And works as a travel pump and feedbag holder, easily bending up to fit in your bag.
Consistent feeds anywhere, every time.
With the FreeArm’s bendable gooseneck, you can take the guesswork out of how high to hold the bolus syringe and keep lines free from kinks as the FreeArm holds a feeding pump and feedbag.
Freeman Ellis Staley was born April 25, 2015. He spent 3.5 months in the NICU at Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock. His parents, Will and Misti spent every day by his side cheering him on. Freeman was discharged with a g-tube, bolus gravity feeds during the day and pump feeds at night.
While home, Misti and Will were overwhelmed with tube feeding their son. They had medicines to add to his feeds, and multiple therapies to perform all while holding Freeman, and his bolus feeds. They needed a helping hand, so they created one…the FreeArm!
After 5 hard but wonderful weeks at home, Freeman’s breathing became labored and Will and Misti returned to the hospital with Freeman for a chest x-ray. Freeman and his family spent another long 5 months in the PICU before Freeman lost his battle with pulmonary hypertension at almost 10 months old, the day after Valentine’s Day 2016.
It has been 3 years since Will and Misti lost Freeman. They are happy to continue Freeman’s love through the FreeArm, making bolus and pump feeding easier for tubies around the world.
